Deviled Eggs with Schmaltz and Gribenes

1 dozen

Bon Apetit Magazine recently featured variations on deviled eggs that included a recipe for bacon deviled eggs which got me thinking about: how to make a more Jewish version!?

Shortly after reading through the recipes, I was munching on some crunchy gribenes from 2nd Avenue Deli in New York, and it came to me: deviled eggs with chicken fat and gribenes could be the perfect Jewey alternative!

So what is gribenes? I always describe this traditional Eastern European food as a “Jewish pork rind,” which Wikipedia agrees with. Never made it before? The Shiksa in the Kitchen has a great step-by-step schmaltz and gribenes guide.

Fried chicken skin not really your cup of tea? Bon Apetit also has a few other varieties to try including Anchovy Deviled Eggs, Chipotle Deviled Eggs and Sour Cream, Lemon and Herb Deviled Eggs.
